Pollen and Procurers

This ragged swallowtail went crazy for the evening primrose flowers.

With lack of rain pollen stayed on the anthers for long periods.

The bee in the poppies has the heaviest baggage I have ever seen.

Gorgeous images, Mary! Your macros are so sharp!
Had fun with the music!
Mary MacADNski: I use no sharpening at all. I had a real hard time getting a shot of the bee with the mauve flowers, it was moving so fast.

A pretty butterfly.
Mary MacADNski: It is very ragged so must be fairly old None of the swallow tail is left at all.
Nature's bounty for the insects

A banquet for bees. The main picture is a cracking one and the rest demonstrate the point about the pollen quite well.
